If State doesn't mail notification on time who's responsible?

by admin on August 3, 2010

When a Texas WORKER’S OR BENIFICIARY’S NOTICE OF INJURY OR OCCUPATIONAL DISEASE AND CLAIM FOR COMPENSATION is timely filed to the Texas Department of Insurance -Division of Workers Compensation, What is the statutory limitation, as in turn around time, to timely mail or notify the "Carrier"?
Who’s legally responsible for the claim if TDI-DWC doesn’t notify "Carrier" timely & the injured worker is denied benefits & medical treatment (can’t get medical treatment in 6 months for bone spurs/chips & 3 herniated discs. Employer did not file original injury report to "carrier" & Carrier has not responded).
A “Carrier” is a required employer’s insurance company to cover on the job injuries. The TDI-DWC is there to process & record the claim & also to help you focus on prompt medical treatment & get back to work.
Please state the law on response time; e.g. TDI-DWC receives a claim, mails notification to parties; How long to get it in the mail & what proof would TDI-DWC have of this?
